About me

My name is Karina and I’m studying Physics at UCL. My curiosity about our changing surroundings has led me to the truly amazing world of Physics. The search for explanations behind the occurrences of the universe continues to inspire physicists, resulting in the development of principles that account for not only the smallest of particles but also the vastest of cosmos. This is the reason why I chose Physics, to try to understand the universe and overcome all the challenges that it entails. <...

My name is Karina and I’m studying Physics at UCL. My curiosity about our changing surroundings has led me to the truly amazing world of Physics. The search for explanations behind the occurrences of the universe continues to inspire physicists, resulting in the development of principles that account for not only the smallest of particles but also the vastest of cosmos. This is the reason why I chose Physics, to try to understand the universe and overcome all the challenges that it entails. 

I did the Spanish Baccalaureate and the International Baccalaureate. Having sat different exam boards and different methods of learning one same subject has enforced in me a lot of versatility when it comes to learning as well as sitting exams. Also, doing both of the baccalaureates made me go through a very long exam period which just made me stronger mentally and more disciplined. Going through this has taught me a lot about mental health during exams, organization, etc, which I would love to share with students. 

When it comes to hobbies, I am strongly passionate about sports. I’d encourage all my students to find one hobby that they deeply enjoy and where they can clear their mind. For my classes, I will make sure to get to know the student so that I can tailor the sessions according to their necessities. Overall, I’ll try to make the classes as enjoyable as I can whilst being the most productive.

About my sessions

When it comes to the classes, I would dedicate the first session to get to know more about the student, I’d try to figure out his/her personality to see what learning/teaching techniques would work, what are their learning currently in school as well as their weak points so that we can further improve it. 


I am going to make sure the classes are useful as well as entertaining, find new techniques so that learning never becomes boring. My main aim with the classes is to show...

When it comes to the classes, I would dedicate the first session to get to know more about the student, I’d try to figure out his/her personality to see what learning/teaching techniques would work, what are their learning currently in school as well as their weak points so that we can further improve it. 


I am going to make sure the classes are useful as well as entertaining, find new techniques so that learning never becomes boring. My main aim with the classes is to show the students how to learn and discover their own potential so that eventually they don’t need me. I have gone through the stress of sitting exams, not understanding certain topics or struggling to keep up with the workload myself, for this exact reason I will try my best to be as supportive as I can with the students and teach them how to overcome these periods.


Overall the subjects I’m teaching are subjects I’m strongly passionate about and I want to transmit this passion to the students, because once there is interest in what you’re learning, learning becomes so much more enjoyable.
